RAQs: Rarely Asked Questions
Questions we don’t ask each other but I really wish we did so we can have meaningful conversations around who we are and blaze past “what do you do” small talk.
What're the little things that feel like big things?
Fresh flowers, FaceTiming my nephew, finding new fronds on my birds nest fern. Handwritten letters, throw blankets on the beach, reading outside. When old friends meet new friends and share deep laughs. Good tiramisu and vintage jeans with the perfect fit.
What’re two seemingly contradictory ideas you juggle?
For as long as I can remember I’ve proudly called myself independent and held it as a badge of honor. What I thought was a reflection of my self-sufficiency is really just a reflection of how modern society villainizes dependence and fetishizes independence in ways that are unnatural and unhealthy. I’m drawn to the idea of community living and its role in our overall well-being. I'd love help find a solution for us to collectively reconcile the two both in theory and practice by unromanticizing the former (independence) and destigmatizing the latter (community dependence).
What’s your least popular opinion and why?
The point of this section is to hopefully make the internet and this site more of a two way street. Which means I share and then you share. This is my favorite question and my answer is a hot take (maybe lukewarm for some people). If you're curious and willing to share your own answer, drop me a line and let's chat 🍵
